As always excellent but the monk fish was a little insipid.

One of the oldest French restaurants in London, 2 AA Rosette award-winning Mon Plaisir on Monmouth Street has been serving delectable French cuisine for over half a century.

Decorated in French artefacts, Mon Plaisir - London resonates with a nostalgic atmosphere of decadent France throughout its 4 individual dining rooms. Mon Plaisir also features a pewter topped bar which once graced the lounge of a Lyonnaise brothel.

Mon Plaisir Covent Garden continues to serve traditional cuisine created from the finest French ingredients and carefully prepared by the restaurant’s highly skilled chefs. Signature dishes include snails in garlic and parsley butter and the fillet of sea bream with mustard sauce, exuding a real French flair. There is also a slick wine list which predominantly features fine French wines.

With its fine French food and authentic ambience, Mon Plaisir is just a 7-minute walk from Covent Garden Tube Station. Mon Plaisir has been acknowledged in fine restaurant guides, including Hardens, Square Meal, Via Michelin and The Good Food Guide.

    Excellent food. Harks back to the quality food once available all over France. Good value.

    Premises very bistro in the good sense. Well situated.

    This was our second visit to Mon Plaisir and we had another enjoyable experience in this obviously popular eaterie close to London's theatreland. We had a table for four including two vegetarians who were generally pleased with the offer available to them - apart from the unnecessary use of chicken stock in the French onion soup! They did like the carrot and cumin soup that was offered as an alternative however. I ate the salmon cannelloni starter which was substantial, tasty and well-presented followed by the medium-cooked noisette d'agneau (lamb) accompanied by pommes alumettes (skinny fries). We drank a reasonably priced bottle of Cotes du Rhone with our meal and shared an assiette gourmande dessert between us. Overall, the service was pretty good for a busy Saturday evening and we would cheerfully return.

    Usual relaxed atmosphere with friendly welcome and service. Menu broad enough to offer choice with good value. Consistent feeling of exiting having thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    'Mon Plaisir' Is the most delightful family run French Restaurant, everything on the menu is brilliant, the daily menu is great value. My dining companion is disabled, they could not have been more accommodating and helpful ditto also with young families with push chairs and prams. The ex-pat French dine here, what more can be said!
